Silken Muddy Honey Mask for Beautiful Face


  • 2 tsp runny raw honey
  • 1 tsp Dead Sea mud
  • 10 drops borage oil (or other rich carrier oil)
  • 1 tsp witch hazel
  • 11 tsp (3 tbsp + 2 tsp) kaolin clay
  • ¼ tsp silk peptides
  • 3 drops wild orange essential oil (can substitude other citrus essential oils)
  • 1 drop cardamom essential oil
  • 4 drops Peru balsam essential oil (can substitute benzoin essential oil)
  • 6 drops cedarwood essential oil

Preparation :

  1. Whisk together the honey, mud, oil, and witch hazel in a small bowl. The Dead Sea mud I used is from Saffire Blue, and it’s quite runny. If yours is more paste-like, use ½ tsp of the mud and add another ½ tsp of witch hazel.
  2. Sprinkle in the silk and clay a little at a time, whisking between additions. Next up, whisk in the essential oils.
  3. To use, smooth over your face and leave it for 20–30 minutes before rinsing off.
  4. This recipe will make enough for about three applications, so you can either share with a couple friends, or cover the leftovers (I recommend some clingfilm right on the surface of it to keep it hydrated) and store them in the fridge. Use within 4 days.
